Atkinson touched in 30.67 with Lorna Tonks, a 25-year-old Brit who is a naturalised Australian, finishing in seventh in 31.99.
Fraser-Holmes trailed teammate and national champion Cameron McEvoy for 150 metres but overhauled him over the final 25 metres to win in one minute 45.08. McEvoy touched in 1:45.56, while 400m freestyle silver medallist David McKeon continued his impressive rise with a fourth place in 1:46.74.
